Ratings and Reviews
Not an upgrade
First, the sunsetting of NexxGarage was poorly managed. A single email notification recommending upgrade to NexxHome to “ensure...experience runs smoothly” whatever that means. No mention NexxGarage will stop working.
NexxGarage stops working as others have noted. Spend an hour troubleshooting until reading email above.
NexxHome downloaded and function restored but now working with app designed for multiple devices and small right upper corner door icons instead of the easy to mash big center icons in the previous app. All the worse for us lefties.
Not an upgrade - better to have kept NexxGarage up to date. It worked fine until this “upgrade.” Disappointing for this otherwise pleasing product.
Suggestions and bug work
Overall...I think the app functions well. Manually opening and closing hasn’t failed me yet. Sometimes the auto open feature doesn’t work. It’s usually when my phone is only on the lock screen and not active. So...to say that the feature works when the app is in the foreground or background so true but...not 100% of the time. Maybe they developers can tweak that function a little more for the next update. I haven’t tried the watch app so I can’t speak to its effectiveness or usefulness but I would, very much, like to see some car play integration. After all...it’s a car related app. Generally speaking, I’m pleased with the app and the product.
OK with room for improvements
If you get this app from the green older version Nexx Garage, you may want to remove your device and add it back on to the new blue version Nexx Home. Logging off and back on is recommended.
The app allows you to remotely open/close garage door and see the status (open or closed). Reminder is nice but nothing spectacular. Auto open or just drive is a good idea but doesn’t work reliably, especially for shared user (spouse or others in the family that use garage). Customer service or tech support is actually decent. Not sure how many people reach out when they run into issues.
If not for the support of IFTTT, I would probably rank it lower. Search Nexx Garage in IFTTT. It works. Native integration with Google and Alexa is not great. Using IFTTT, you can create your own phrases for Google home voice control. I believe Echo or Alexa would work the same way. Also, scheduled open/close, auto open/close, and other automations can be achieved.
Wish Nexx can add support for Home Kit.
